Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

Clear dark copper. Aroma is sweet bananas. Taste adds cloves. Nice beer. I would love this in the winter.

Piękna piana. Aromat bananów i goździków. W ogóle zarówno z piany jak i aromatu nieco podobne do piw pszenicznych. Intensywny, dość słodki smak, dużo alkoholu, mało wyczuwalny chmiel, wysycenie średnie. Naprawdę zacne piwo do degustacji.

33cl bottle bb10-2016, sampler from source 2013. Revisited classic. Pours a honey amber and just as viscous. Aromas of pear, banana, honey, nuts smoothly give way to a first honey-sweet, then fruity almond apple, before a fair amount of complementary hops set it for a mid-long elegant finish. Mellow dessert beer even in high summer, although never really a go-to favourite.

Bottle 750ml. A light cooper beer with a frothy head that fades away quickly. Aroma is of bananas and nuts. Taste is bitter, well-balanced and it has a medium to high carbonation. I think it also has an alcoholic finish. Overall an excelent beer.

Bottle. Pours really nicely, color is hazy amber (little darker), beautiful foam head that sticks to the glass. Aromas are hearty but sweet, mostly fresh apples (Jonagold), hint of dried apricots, generall smell of spices. A deep whiff also reminds of hairspray, due to the alcohol (little boozy). Not overly complex, but very nicely executed. Taste starts fruity and creamy, mild peppers, you can feel the alcohol build up in the mouth. Nice experience. As the alcohol swells the taste develops into a faint but discernible cherry-like sweetness. Beautiful and very well balanced. Aftertaste is apples again. Warmth from the alcohol combines nicely with the aftertaste. Absolutely nothing wrong with this one, would gladly have another!

Robe ambrée aux reflets pourpres et coiffée d'une épaisse mousse Arôme doux, notes liquoreuses de fruits macérés Douces et fruitées. Rappel le Porto par ses saveurs fruitées

Kolor bursztynowy. Piana beżowa, głośno syczy przy nalewaniu, bardzo szybko opada. Aromat mocno owocowy: śliwka, wiśnia, jabłko, banan, trochę jakby fermentujące owoce oraz karmelowa słodycz i odrobina nut kwiatowych. Smak na początku przypomina mocne wino, dużo dojrzałych owoców oraz słodycz, w trakcie i na finishu mocno wyczuwalny alkohol, który jest dość dobrze wkomponowany. Wysycenie wysokie, faktura nieznacznie oleista. Dobre, mocne piwo, doskonale rozgrzewa.
